w220 - S Class feedback
Hi,

I am looking to get a w220 - S320 as my next purchase...
Plan is to get a recond unit from Japan - either year 03 or 04...

Did a search at this forum but could not find a lot of info on this model... Appreciate if the forum members could give their 2 cents on this especially on the reliability, what to look out during selection, maintenance etc...

Thanks...

It is a very nice car. What i know is the the maintainance is on the high side for its suspension due to the absorber which is the common problem for this model.1pc of absorber rm2500.
In terms of engine wise, im not sure but there's always
one w220 whenever i go to adi.

Nice comfortable cruiser.

Some of the additional things that you should look for:

o Walk away if the aircond isn't working well. Could be expensive affair.

o Engine and transmission could last for ages if well taken care of, but electricals and electronics can go haywire.

o Cat converter is very expensive to replace. Check b4 buying.

Cheers!!

IMHO W220 S class is a comfortable highway cruiser. Plush leather seats, smooth gearshift as well as the maximum comfort ride thanks to the airmatic suspension (air suspension). However, there are a few things that you need to look into before commit yourself:

1. The airmatic suspension can be very costly to repair, my friend's mother spent quite a bomb merely to change the air suspension.

2. As mentioned by uncle c9, the catalytic converter can be a very costly affair as well as the air conditioner system.

Good luck for your quest bro...

My boss drives a W220 and while the car is certainly better than a w140 the maintenance cost will be much more.

I would describe the airmatic suspension as unsuitable for our malaysian type roads.

If money for maintenance is no issue, then that's a nice car to own.

Cheers

Tony
